Re: Volvo 2020D Hand crank?
Yep, agree with TQA.
I tried more than once to start a 3cyl Yanmar that DID have de-compressors and never once achieved success.
Without de-compressors? The engine supplier that provides such an engine with a crank handle has at least got a sense of humor.
The Yanmar 3cyl starter motor has a standard spec of 1.4kW. And that is at a ratio to the crankshaft of at least 3 times the alternator so a hand-held drill on the alt? Forget about it. A back-up starting option is another battery and maybe a spare starter motor - nothing else practical will work.
